Primary Health Care
After 130 years’ experience in the delivery of humanitarian and ambulance services in Western Australia, St John Ambulance will now deliver a new primary health care service for the community. A key part of this service will be to offer patients another bulk-billed pathway to urgent care that is safe, timely and high quality.
St John Ambulance believe this service will be necessary to ensure it continues the delivery of humanitarian services to the Western Australian community and in delivering an effective, efficient ambulance service now and well into the future.
By facilitating and providing primary health care, St John Ambulance will be able to incorporate ambulance and primary health care into one service for unscheduled care requirements. This will provide another safe and timely pathway into the health care system for people in need.
How is St John Ambulance doing this?
St John Ambulance WA has recently acquired Apollo Health. Apollo Health operates four primary health clinics across the metro area located in Armadale, Cannington, Cockburn and Joondalup. These facilities are state of the art and offer a range of combined health solutions including general practice, dental and physiotherapy.
This will also bring the introduction of St John Urgent Care Centres – these centres are currently operating at the Joondalup and Cockburn clinics, with Armadale to follow shortly afterwards. During this time, all four clinics will continue to accept walk in unscheduled care patients.
